“Aloha Envirolet!

We were able to easily get our Envirolet toilet up and running and even built a cute little outdoor cottage for it! It enabled us to quickly have a toilet solution while building an Eco-Village off the grid. We like it so much we hope it will become a long term toilet solution for our eco-village!”

Hot or Not? You be the Judge...

Posted by Scott

There is a survey being conducted over on Apartment Therapy as to whether our Envirolet Waterless Toilet in Hot Pink is hot or not.

We, of course, think it is Hot! But, to each is own because the Not’s are winning so far… most would prefer a matching colour seat. Good idea. And, we do have the same item in white or beige for the less adventurous!

If you look (really) close you can see the Wind Turbine ventilator on the roof. Look at the image on flickr for a better view.

More photos to come!

Treehugger has a post about Biothinking’s Top 40.

Treehugger calls it a list of the “World’s top 40 greenest products.”

We agree and really like this list — especially because Envirolet composting toilets are on it!

"Your toilet proved to be the best."

Posted by Scott

Pat and Barry sent us in some great comments about their Envirolet Composting Toilet System.

“We have a cottage on the Pickeral River which is just north of Parry Sound. We do not have electricity and most of the terrain is rocks.

Two years ago we went to a Cottage show and found your company there. We spent the winter thinking about which one we should buy, but your toilet proved to be the best.

It was very simple to install, and we are now into our second season and found that the maintenance is much easier then we thought. The first time we cleaned it out, we put gloves on and held our breath until we realized that everything had turned to a rich compost and there was no odour.

We are part of a club on the Pickeral River and we tell everyone who is considering buying a composting toilet to come and look at ours.

Thanks for making our summer holidays more pleasant and ‘odor free.’”

Pat and Barry C.

Thanks for the comments, we appreciate it!
